Tool bass tabs for Prison sex

Bass tabs with lyrics

Ok, here are the TOOL bass lines I promised way back when. I figgured I'd
do something to "redeem" myself for my sins. Bassists, for your jamming
pleasure I have transcribed (sometimes only parts of) "Prison Sex", "Bottom",
"Opiate", and "Sober". I broke the songs down into riffs but you'll have to
listen tho the albums to get the exact tempo an rhythm. Also, the E-string
is dropped to D (this is common in, I think, ALL TOOL songs.)

Tips on playing these songs:
    1) Play with a pick. Paul does. Although, sometimes I do it
      w/ my fingers.
    2) Boost your Treble and Mid a few notches to get a sharper sound.
      But, you still want to keep the low end rumbling.
    3) Don't be afraid to experiment. Paul varies his bass lines a lot,
      give it a try as well. It's just easier to tab it when it's
      straight forward.
    [4) Use a 'chorus' effect. --Bucky]

Intro riff:

Verse:             Fill:
+-------------------+      +-------------16\X-+
|*---------0-----2-*|      |-------------16\X-|
|*-2-2-2-2---2-0---*|      |-2-2-2-2-0-2-14\X-|
+-------------------+      +------------------+


Notes: Here are the main riffs. The song consists mainly of these
    with the exception of a bridge and a break, both of which I
    didn't bother to figure. However, most of the break takes
    place on the open-A and 2nd-fret A-string.
